The dirty side I get quite a lot of oil but on the clean side, since I have an other can just gets some vaps and the TB is'nt dirty anymore.

I've installed 2 basic cans in wich I added some stainless wire to stuff the inside, i did prolong the incoming tube to the bottom of the can so the fumes will go thrue the wires going out at the top ( I placed a spring I made with a hard wire so the bottom so the wire won't lie in the oil. At that time I was'nt aware about RX or Elite cans and I might change the set up next summer. But so far they seem to do the job. I know SC2150 will tell me to test the cans by adding a oil filter along the outcoming lines, but I just did'nt have the time to do the test. Also I think RX have a model that you can connect both sides on a single can. 2 entries 1 exit. Will look into that later. I took off the breather and replaced it with a regular can since I changed my hood and it did'nt fit. Replaced it by the EOM cap.
Thanks Montreal, I guess I need to do this asap. Wasn't gonna do any engine mods whatsoever but I guess this one needs to be done. There's a speed shop here in town maybe they have a three port catch can in stock.

I am very happy with my Elite engineering catch can. Ruby runs great and has never burned or "lost" one bit of oil. But you should see the nasty gunk my Elite catches which otehrwise would have ended up in my engine. It is easy to install, easy to empty & care for & does a great job. If you love your Camaro a good catch can is the best investment you can make. Here are a couple of pics of some of the crap my Elite catches:

Post up a pic of the bracket. They may have sent you the wrong one. That happened to me. They sent the right one very quickly. I had to temporarily mount mount mine for a day until it arrived.

I have pics of both mountings but I will have to look for them. Pist up a pic so I can help ya out. Who did you buy from?

Is everything good with that? I've never seen anything like that in my catch can. I usually collect about 2oz with each oil change and mine is a dark, rich, almost burnt looking oil that is thin in substance. I can put a finger in it and see my skin though the oil is dark. Those pics almost look as though water or antifreeze might be in the mix and I'm not suggesting that there is an issue but I'd check it out for sure. This is the first catch I've seen with a residual like this.

I have to agree, that does not look right at all

To me, it doesn't look right nor does it look good. I've attached two pics of mine below and like I said, its about 2oz each time I change the oil. I'm using a synthetic oil by Mobil-1 and its been like this since the beginning of ownership and my catch can was an immediate mod for me before I really did anything else. You can even see where the oil is on the side of the plastic cup, you can see through it or see that its clearly all oil.

Again, I'm not suggesting something is wrong but it doesn't look good and that's the first time I've seen anything like that from any catch can. It looks as though something got mixed in with your oil causing that greenish appearance where as with my pics, its clearly an all oil deposit. I think its worth having it looked at.

Edit: I don't think its a water intrusion as you would see a separation of oil and water which makes me wonder of about antifreeze. Hell I don't know and I'm not a mechanic. Hell I don't even play one on TV but look at the two. There is clearly a huge difference in what your can is collecting Ruby, compared to mine.

It's a double L bracket that you screw on the radiator fixation. I changed the original screw with one slightly larger and 1 quarter inch longer to give it more grip. The bracket is on the left can, since I have 2 of them. and I made it myself to add the second one with a home made bracket to reinforce. But for 1 can it's the good screw to use.

Well guys, Ive decided my next move. Was sold on getting a C63 AMG in 2014, but now its been settled. Ill be picking up a C7, hoping Z07 but base C7 will be good enough for me, and ill be getting it in red or yellow but most likely red. Love the car, and maybe because camaro concept cues are in it.
Love the car, always wanted an AMG but this takes the cake
Hope the motor is a good mod friendly platform. With its DI, im a bit scared of it. We will have to see but none the less great job by Chevy. WOW

Lot of moaning that it looks like a Camaro but I think that's a compliment to the Camaro. Still, if I had the cash I get one for the techno side of it.
This much I know is true, there will be a ton of previous gens on dealership lots in the up coming months as their owners will have to have the next one.
I expect some deals on those cars and I expect some Gen5 owners to step up.

Yeah, that Stingray is sexy but above my paygrade. I hope it rides better than the last generation did. I rode in the one my brother-in law had & I would have chosen a Camaro over it. I just like the way it feels riding in it better.

I was told it had to do with the time of the year & condensation. Some times of the year it looks more clear. but however it looks it is not getting blown back into my engine and that is all I car about. I am considering putting a second catch can on the "clean" side or maybe a breather oil cap. I'll look for a pic of my catch can as it is mounted now & post it up.

Okay, here are a couple of pics of the mount of my catch can & one of the very first oil my catch can caught.

im honestly in love. I think everything about it is great. It shares cues with the Camaro, but the Camaro did the same with its concept in 06. Overall, I think its great. As long as the LT1 is mod friendly. Ill pick up a C7 next year

Typically the FI systems will lead to condensation build up with the oil in catch cans. I didn't think that was a possibility for a stock input since the input air is not compressed as in a FI setup?
